SimDriveline Product Description

Model and simulate one-dimensional mechanical systems

SimDriveline™ provides component libraries for modeling and simulating one-dimensional mechanical systems. It includes models of rotational and translational components, such as worm gears, planetary gears, lead screws, and clutches. You can use these components to model the transmission of mechanical power in helicopter drivetrains, industrial machinery, vehicle powertrains, and other applications. Automotive components, such as engines, tires, transmissions, and torque converters, are also included. SimDriveline models can be converted into C code for real-time testing of controller hardware.

Key Features

  • Common gear configuration models, including planetary, differential, and worm gears with meshing and viscous losses

  • Clutch models, including cone, disk friction, unidirectional, and dog clutch

  • Vehicle component models, including engine, tire, torque converter, and vehicle dynamics models

  • Models of translational elements, including leadscrew, rack and pinion, and translational friction

  • Ideal and non-ideal model variants, enabling adjustment of model fidelity

  • Ability to extend component libraries using the Simscape™ language

  • Ability to specify units for parameters and variables, with automatic unit conversion

  • Support for C-code generation from SimDriveline models (with Simulink® Coder™)
